About Surin Liveaboard Tours
Experience the best snorkeling in Thailand from a purpose-built live-aboard boat. We take you on the trip of a lifetime to the spectacular Surin Islands and Richelieu Rock (if conditions permit). During the day you can go snorkeling, explore deserted beaches, or just relax on the boat. At night we lay anchor in scenic and protected quiet bays. Surin Tours by Poseidon Bungalows have been running popular snorkeling tours for over 30 years. We are the single longest running tour operator on the Andaman Sea and are proud of our outstanding safety record. The safety and the comfort of our guests is our highest priority. You will enjoy a far quieter, more comfortable, and relaxed Surin Islands tour compared to the faster, but crowded speedboats. Sleep in air-conditioned comfort in double or single bunks and have room to move and relax on your Surin Island snorkeling tour. For just 10900฿ - it's still the best value-for-money and most popular Surin liveaboard snorkeling trip available.

What an awesome adventure! We loved our three days of continuous playing in the sea and jumping off the boat and I didn’t feel sick once ( I have been know to feel ill on an inflatable!).Totally professional from the excellent host at Poseidon Bungalows through to a knowledgeable, experienced captain, fun guide Max and our brilliant cook. The boat is compact but comfortable, aircon bunks with privacy curtains, spotless toilets and a warm shower off the back of the boat. All you need. The snorkelling was varied with lots to see and we had a fabulous group of interesting people. Book it! I highly recommend this.

Thanks so much for the great feedback! We love to show our lucky guests the special spots away from the crowds, the quiet, secluded bays that take you back to a time before the mass tourism boom hit Thailand. So glad you had a great time and thanks again for taking the time to share your comments of what what makes what we do so unique and special. Warmest regards from all the crew. Hope to see you back for more adventures on your next trip to Thailand :)

What a beautiful way to spend some time away from civilisation. The way to slow down Your life pace, at least for a few days. Our trip started with some engine troubles, but who cares. The captain fixed it, while we were watching sea eagles and got to know each other. Then slowly off to a beautiful set of islands in clear waters. The crew and the guide were like family and there was never any stress or tension on the boat. And by the way, the food was delicious. We have been to Similan islands as well, where the crowd was killing the enjoyment. We recommend this trip to anybody, who likes to slow down, enjoys tranquility and a time to remember.

Thanks for your honest and kind feedback. We are glad you loved the relaxing pace of the tour, the buffet meals and our experienced captain and crew. We are sorry for the slight delay early in the trip (discarded fishing gear and/or plastic waste had fouled the bilge pump and had to be removed). Discarded fishing nets and plastics are a significant problem worldwide and very harmful to marine life as well as boats! Thanks again for your lovely review - we will be sure to pass it on to the captain and crew :) Warmest regards from the Poseidon family team.

For the second time we're joining Duangta on a three day snorkeling trip and there's a reason for us coming back! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to experience the wonderful life on earth and underneath the surface and believe that this arrangement helps the human kind to be more compassionate and caring for mother earth.

I have been on the Poseidon 3 day boat trips to both the Similan & Surin islands. Their snorkeling trips are well organized and reasonably priced. Their boat is basic but fun & comfortable. The food is really good & the snorkelling excellent, at about 8 different locations around the Surins spread over 3 days. Great variety of marine life & water clarity. An enjoyable & relaxing trip to an unspoiled marine sanctuary, with turquoise waters & dense, unbroken green vegetation on the islands. The best liveaboard snorkelling trip in Thailand & a really memorable experience.
